Teachers will love the step by step directions and journal layout. Students will enjoy seeing the crystals form. This is a great activity for science fairs, classrooms, clubs, or science camps. The multiple grade levels are perfect for the STEM or Science Lab Teacher.

The 2nd/3rd-grade investigation contains word boxes and more guidance. They complete one trial. The 4th/5th-grade investigation tests different types of water and students perform two trials. The 6th-8th-grade version expands to an if, then, because hypothesis, 4 types of water to test, and 3 trials. It really takes crystal growth up a notch.
